New Baltimore City Food Truck Locations

Mayor Catherine E. Pugh Announces Expansion of the City’s Food Truck Program

Additional food truck zones will provide citizens with safe and easy access to a variety of food choices 

BALTIMORE, MD (April 12, 2017) – Today, Mayor Catherine E. Pugh was joined by the Baltimore City Department of Transportation, the Baltimore City Health Department and  representatives from the food truck industry to announce the expansion of the city’s food truck program.

“We are excited to designate new food truck zones in Baltimore City that will benefit both citizens and vendors,” said Mayor Pugh.  “The establishment of these additional locations will provide citizens with safe and easy access to a variety of food choices.”

The City of Baltimore started its food truck program back in 2013.  The initial zones were placed primarily in the downtown business district, and since that time the city has been working to determine where new locations would be the most beneficial to both citizens and vendors. 

The new designated zones are situated throughout the city, and include such areas as college campuses, hospitals and transit stations.  The establishment of these additional locations will provide citizens with safe and easy access to a variety of food choices.  The food truck zones also provide vendors with new opportunities to conduct business in the city. 

A total of ten new food truck zones have been designated in Baltimore and are marked with special signage.  Each zone will include designated spots for two food trucks and are typically in effect between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  All food trucks must be permitted by the city and must pass inspection by the Health Department. 

The new designated food truck locations include:

  • Loyola University Campus – Charles Street near Evergreen Museum entrance
  • Rogers Station – MTA

4500 block of W. Rogers Avenue near metro station

  • Mt. Hope Drive at Wabash Avenue near courthouse/parking lot
